Friends and supporters,

What a magnificent year 2013 has been for the LGBTQ community!

In June, the Supreme Court overturned California’s Prop 8 ruling AND repealed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Today, gay marriage is a legal civil right in 18 states and DC, including Utah. Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin serves as the first openly lesbian or gay U.S. Senator. This week, Good Morning America host and cancer survivor, Robin Roberts, posted on Facebook that she is grateful for her "longtime girlfriend," Amber.


Ask Brittany: the CyberCenter

I get a lot of calls and people coming to The Center asking about our David Bohnett CyberCenter, which is free for the community to utilize.  I hear things like “What else besides checking my emails can I do?” or “ Can I play candy crush off my Facebook page here?”

So here's my answer.


Welcoming Remarks for TDoR Vigil

The following is CEO Bob Elkins' welcoming remarks at the Transgender Day of Remembrance Vigil held at The Center on Friday, November 22.

Greetings, gentlepersons.

I’ve met a number of you already, but I do see some faces I’m not familiar with, so please let me introduce myself. I am Bob Elkins, The Center’s new Chief Executive Officer.  It’s truly an honor to be with you this evening.


The Meaning of Community

Being true to its name, The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada (you know us as The Center) is a place where people of every background can come access resources, attend one or more of the 40+ groups that meet here, enjoy Bronze Café, or just hang out in the Great Hall or Youth Center.
